Anyone try the new Apple Earpods? I got them just because when I'm traveling back and forth to class and work I listen to music but many times need to answer a call, so its convenient having the built in mic, so I can talk hands free and my music continues when the call is over.
Anyways, the earbuds seem to be on par, if not a little better than my Skullcandy's. Mind you, I have Ultrasone Pro 900's as well as Fostex PM1 MKII 6.5" monitors...so I know if something sounds good. Granted I've never used a pair of high end ear buds, but these seem suitable for 30 bucks.
Moreover, the buds have 2 small slits that act as ports, the lower for the bass and the top for the mids. Then theres this weird port on the side of the buds pointing straight in towards your head like the old buds did, not towards your ear canal like the main drivers. I did some research and Apple seems to be keeping pretty hush about that? My guess is its for a bigger sound stage...any thoughts?
